Quotation by "Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO of Opera"

I will swim from Norway to the USA if download numbers of Opera 8 reach 1 million in four days

Opera has now installed additional servers with increased capacity, and it was the download counter showing 600 000 downloads in 48 hours that sparked Mr Tetzschner's enthusiasm and thus his courageous promise to boldly swim where no man has swum before. "I am not sure he realizes how cold the Norwegian Sea is in April," says Anne Stavnes, Human Resource Manager, Opera Software. "However, having seen Jon in his red beach attire before, I am not sure if swimming to the USA is scarier than exposing people to this sight.

There were 600.000 downloads in the first 48 hours (external link).

I hope someone brings a camera along with his attempt. :-D
